• Outside of the watch area…2 to 3 inches of snow are possible tonight.
• Winds will increase overnight across the entire area. Northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph will create blowing and drifting snow.
• Confidence is high for the 2 to 3 inches of system snow tonight all areas. Confidence is medium to high for the lake effect snow but lower confidence on exact amounts and locations. Thus the watch at this time.
